Her message and her gift is the power and vitality of her Vulva, the certain signs of her guts and the untamed un-shamed speech „out of the middle“. People know her by different names in different regions and cultures. Personification of fertility and deep laughter. Her name stands for uterus, womb, cave. The greek goddess Baubo helped goddess Demeter – who’s grief over the loss of her daughter Persephone stopped the worlds fertility and created winter – to retrieve her joy and laughter, by lifting her skirt. When Demeter laughed, the fecundity of the world returned. This myth goes along with other tribal tradition in which lifting the skirt is a gesture of female power. Also suitable to chase away aggressors and demons. Baubo looks quite special. Her belly is at the same time her head, her breasts are her eyes, and her vulva is her mouth. And with her vulva mouth she tells obscene jokes and laughs so deeply and vibrating, that she makes the world tremble.
